I'm a journalist with over a decade of experience at the world's most established and newest media companies. I have a range of experience from live production to documentaries to launching new shows. I like making complicated subjects understandable.

I currently present the Wall Street Journal's flagship morning news podcast, What's News, after leading the relaunch of the show and its relocation to London. Previously, I was a correspondent at the BBC in New York, London and elsewhere contributing to a range of outlets, including daily lives from the floor of the NYSE. I launched the Marketplace Morning Report from the BBC World Service, the first joint production from American Public Media and the BBC.

I've worked in podcasting since the early days, learning from the best at Gimlet Media, Freakonomics, Marketplace, Studio 360, and Living on Earth. 

I hold an MBA with distinction from Columbia Business School, where I received a full tuition Wiegers fellowship. I also have an MS from Columbia's Journalism School, where I was a Knight-Bagehot fellow, and a BA with honors from Harvard. I lived and taught in Romania for a year as a Fulbright fellow.

I'm from the beach (not shore) in New Jersey, which means I'm very good at tanning. I'll never understand London weather.
